What Will This Year Bring?
A fresh new start for all! New year, New You! Optimism abounds at the beginning of a new year - usually… Except when it doesn’t.
2019 has no Olympics, no major elections, no end of days predictions (remember 12/21/12 and Y2K?) and yet I find that it could be one of the most important years for the United Methodist Church. There will be a special General Conference Feb. 23-26, 2019, in St. Louis, Missouri to make determinations for our future as a denomination.
What decisions will be made – what changes will come with those decisions – will these decisions impact our worship and ministry here in Alplaus? Some churches are quite worried about their future – others know where they will stand and how they will respond for any given circumstance.
Here is a list of clergy and Laity who will be delegates to the Special General Conference from Upper New York Conference.
Rev. Bill Allen
Rev. Dr. Michelle Bogue-Trost
Rev. Thom White Wolf Fassett
Rev. John Martin
Rev. Bill Mudge
Rev. Holly Nye
Rev. Colleen Hallagan Preuninger

Carmen FS Vianese
Please pray for these folks and all who will be preparing to gather for this brief and important Conference. For more information – look to UM News or unyumc.org, or ask me.
